    I don't know what kind of control he has over his releases, but it seems to me he calls most of the shots. I think he has earn the right to see what's out there, but I hope he doesn't get caught up in a crazy ass contract with any record company that limits his ability to express himself. He knows what sells and what people want to hear so just let him do his thing. I must say it seems like jive has stuck with him through his tough times.....but was that because of the $$$$$ or their respect for him as the most talented artist of our time.

    fyi

    R.Kelly already has a small relationship with the folks over at Universal.

    FYI.

    What if Kells went independent? I'm just saying since what makes anyone think that any other record company would treat him differently than Jive has been treating him for the past five years? Universal would probably try to shoehorn their own idea of what Kells's music should be into his mind, and he'd be feelin the pressure again to make those hip-hop collabos all the time.

    Yes, that's what I think too, K. Johnson. I don't have any hope that other company will give him a different treatment. The music industry is rotten and all these companies are the same, the only color they see is green. I'd love for Rob to go independent but I don't think it will ever happen.

    I'm sure he will take all those things into consideration when he makes a deal (control on music, collabos, promotion, etc).

    those tracks are more commerical,but at the same time the colabs element of it kinda makes me cringe. but the tracks are more commerical sounding. he will get much airplay.

    ...Forum Family...time to 'connect the dots'!!

    EVERYTHING IS COMING TOGETHER:

    From this information AZ has provided about the record company connection, the ongoings of the last few weeks is really making sense!!

    Rob's videos being removed from youtube...?

    Other artists songs popping up on Rob's Jive page...?

    No skin video yet...?

    It may be the case that AZ's page got removed bcuz of a mole, BUT the PCD song being removed aswell? Rob is currently in limbo and while contract negotations/stipulations continue Jive is doing everything in its path to control its investment...in effect, they mite have put Rob on some type of 'Gardening Leave' which means while they aint gonna be doing anything positive for him, they wont allow another record to do anything either...especially if it may lead to them profitting as a result...

    so...

    in the meantime in between time, Rob gotta tow that rope and hold out, until he can dust out!
